Popular Native American Food
By Chris Johnson and Hayley Musgrave
Succotash was popular during the Great Depression, due to the fact that it was inexpensive and that the ingredients were more readily available.
The dish consists of canned, frozen, or fresh sweet corn variety and lima beans or other shell beans. Might also have tomatoes and green or sweet red peppers included in the dish.
Cornbread is usually baked or fried, but it is also rarely steamed. Steamed cornbread is mushy and chewy like cornmeal pudding. Baked cornbread, Corn pone, Johnny cakes and Hushpuppies are all types of Cornbread.
